Are AWS foundational certs or role based certs (associate/pro) still a prerequisite for the AWS Certified Security Specialty ?
This is the current exam guide, seems not to have that prerequisite
This is the previous one:
Correct, no pre-requisites so anybody can register to take the Security Specialty. However, I would advise to take at least the Solutions Architect Associate first, to get some experience with AWS exams as well as getting some background experience with AWS if you don’t already have it.
The official recommendation from AWS is as follows: The AWS Certified Security – Specialty is intended for individuals who perform a security role with at least two years of hands-on experience securing AWS workloads.
